Today was my first day staffing residents in the cataract OR at USC+LA County Medical Center as a volunteer attending. It was my first time walking through the old County hallways since graduation, and it brought back a flood 🌊 of memories from my residency days. Like the first time we struggled to catch a glimpse of the retina 👁 with our new lenses (everything is inverted 🙃 unlike the direct ophthalmoscope which we never use!) How many late call nights we spent seeing one emergency 🚨after another (e.g. ruptured globe, corneal ulcer, retinal detachment, neovascular glaucoma). But in return, we gained invaluable hands-on-experience managing the most advanced cases at one of the largest and busiest county hospitals in the country. It is truly a privilege to graduate as a LAC+USC resident ✌🏻. #countystrong#fighton#lovemedcouture .
